    12.04 No Sound

    Hello! I am a pretty new ubuntu user and here is what I did to install my Ubuntu
    Minimal CD(8.04)->sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop->Update to 10.04->Update to 12.04
    The problem is, I don get a song, and for some reason it tells me that I have an HDMI audio and no microphone, but this is not true at all!
    Please help me, I really need sound!

    2 poimts:

    1. there is a thread for 12.04 issues, i´m sure this will be moved

    2. why, as a ¨pretty new ubuntu user¨ have you chosen to install a alpha release of an os ? what exactly were you expecting?

    my advice, feel free to ignore, is to install 11.10 now, then come that glorious day in april, upgrade to 12.04
    If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Clean the [censored] car.

    Yes thread moved.

    If you are using 12.04 it is expected that you are the one helping people (by reporting bugs), not the other way around. As posted above, 11.10 is a better choice if you are new.

    Hello buhala. Welcome to Ubuntu Linux and the Ubuntuforums!

    Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) is no longer supported.
    Its support ended on June 12, 2011.

    You should install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 11.04, or Ubuntu 11.10.


    Ubuntu 10.04 is supported until April 2013
    Ubuntu 11.04 is supported until October 2012
    Ubuntu 11.10 is supported until April 2013

    Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) is not yet released, and it is not recommended to be used on production machines.


    Good luck!

    If you have an HDMI connector on your system, you may see that the HDMI sound connection is used by default. If you click the speaker icon in the top panel, and select Sound Settings->Hardware Input, do you have a choice of selecting something else?

    You're right, that's what I get for answering posts first thing in the morning, before finishing my first cup of coffee.

    Can you paste the output of:

    Code:
    lspci
    in your next post.

    you first needs to know if your sound chipset/card is well detected by the system: check it via System Settings Sound menu. Then install and run alsamixer for custom settings.
    Maybe you need to specify which hardware to use via: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
